This waterfall lampshade, made using organic cotton threads, is pure layered elegance. Does not include any electrical components.


Our incredible Mexican textile artist, Mariella, creates impressive large-scale wall art and draped thread lampshades that hang in high-end hotels and restaurants from Cancun to Cabo. Her work is a stunning combination of textiles and illusion from her observations of nature and the time she spends in her garden. She uses dyes from plants and her magic fabric threads are recycled bits – sourced from used clothing, discarded, and destined for landfills.

She studied fashion and textile design at the European Institute for Design in Barcelona, Spain where her formal training gave her the confidence and authority to create her magnificent art as she saw it.

Her pieces are custom made to order, please enquire for availability and production time.

Meet the Artisan


Mariella Motilla

Born into an artistic family in Guanajuato, Mexico – Mariella has always been fascinated by textile work and the seemingly unlimited possibilities. Her large-scale wall hangings, depicting mountains and fields, are extraordinary in their vast, expansive views. And her textile thread chandeliers are art in motion – functional art in motion. 

Mariella studied fashion and textile design at the European Institute for Design in Barcelona, Spain, and completed her degree in Mexico City. Her training informed and inspired her work, and she learned a variety of techniques, but more importantly, learned how to be open to new techniques. Said Mariella: "Every time I learn a new technique I am able to make richer pieces."
